Clarence Thomas: The ‘Modern-Day Liberal’ Has Been Bigger ‘Impediment’ than ‘Klansmen’

Looks like Clarence Thomas has some things to say and has an upcoming documentary.


In a forthcoming documentary, "Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words," Thomas lashes out at Democrats and Biden, who chaired the Senate Judiciary Committee and oversaw his confirmation process.

"I felt as though in my life I had been looking at the wrong people as the people who would be problematic toward me. We were told that, 'Oh, it's gonna be the bigot in the pickup truck; it's gonna be the Klansmen; it's gonna be the rural sheriff,'" Thomas says in the film.

"But it turned out that through all of that, ultimately the biggest impediment was the modern day liberal,"
he said of the experience. "They were the ones who would discount all those things because they have one issue or because they have the power to caricature you."


ABC News for the left

Breitbart for the right

I thought that what was done to Clarence Thomas with Anita Hill was one of the worst moments in American political history...

Until Kavenaugh and our recent impeachment fiasco, that is.


Thomas has categorically denied Hill's allegations.

"Do I have like stupid written on the back of my shirt? I mean come on. We know what this is all about," Thomas says in the film. "People should just tell the truth: 'This is the wrong black guy; he has to be destroyed.' Just say it. Then now we're at least honest with each other."

"The idea was to get rid of me," he says. "And then after I was there, it was to undermine me."


Clarence Thomas' famous opening statement in his confirmation process, 1991.... starring Mr. Biden.



I'm looking forward to seeing the documentary.

Thoughts, ATS?

ETA... this is one reason I like him.


The film is a rare opportunity to hear directly from Thomas, who is famously quiet during oral arguments and shies away from public appearances. When he asked a question in May 2019, it was the first time Thomas had spoken in the courtroom in three years.

"We are judges not advocates," he says of his silence. "It's not my job to argue with lawyers. The referee in the game shouldn't be a participant in the game."


To me that's what a Judge should do.

Thomas is a stand up guy. I always liked him.

The left is so disgusting. They really, actually want to destroy anyone that disagrees with them.

They want to ruin their lives and salt the earth.

Horrible people.

..and the Demorats didn't care about the disgrace they brought on the nation - they just did it again to Kavanaugh.
The Democrat party is rotten and racist to the core, caring only about power, willing to destroy anyone who stands in their way- and it and always has been.

Looking forward to seeing the documentary. It's a good reminder - as if it is needed - for Americans on exactly what the Democrat party is.

Really the leftists have been actually SAYING they're racists all the time.

What is "identity politics" but identification based solely on race, gender, gender preference?

They only look as far as skin color or your gender or who you sleep with.

As far as I'm concerned, the leftists are just as racist, sexist, bigoted as anyone at a klan meeting.

They are currently trying to do the same to Trump...

And by extension anyone who thinks like he does or voted for him.

The Deplorables.

I think it's because they really can't sell the message "If we take more money out of your pocket, then you will have more money."

So they resort to character assassination.

I also think they have gotten a little extreme with their methods of late and the American public is waking up to what they really are.

Time will tell....

But I've been hopeful lately.

Since the Klan historically is merely an extension of the Democrat party, you would be entirely correct.

The democrats don't represent the majority of what people would consider themselves 'left'. The problem is deeper then just labeling 'left = democrat' and 'right = republican'.

For example Hillary was VERY right leaning in her platform, the only 'left' leaning attribute to her campaign was abortion. Other then that, it was just Bill and Obama all over again.

Biden is in a league of his own, he's not meant to be president, but here we are, a big name is leading the presidential campaign, and once again snuffing out guys like Sanders who are faux socialists. Bottom line is, the 'left' have now been demonized, the democrats have been nothing but a bull in a china shop. But that doesn't excuse the republicans to just do what ever the hell they want.

I'm gonna put my tin foil hat on here, and take a wild guess that I feel like the democrats are throwing away their coalition party on purpose, but what for?

Clearance Thomas has seen the full force of what the leaders of the democrats can do. And we are seeing it right now, again. But this time, it's just far to clumsy, something is up.

Glad to see some people with a public persona actually saying it, cause most of the middle ground has noticed that for decades now.

You have brought up a very valid point and I've pondered over it for months now.

On one hand, does the Democratic leadership just think the American public is that stupid?

Or on the other hand, is there some long game here we are missing?

Excellent post.

I agree

It seems undeniable that the dEms are absolutely hell-bent on losing the election next year. It’s practically indisputable that that’s the case. They are purposely running on nation-destroying platforms. And are pretending that they believe in their destructive policies.

But the relentless push to make themselves look like hateful, intolerant, incompetent liars and petulant children makes me believe that their actual goal is the disintegration of the dEmocrat party itself.

It’s working

But when they succeed, their sinister reincarnation will be much, much worse.

What is really sad is that Clarence Thomas doesn't get his just due as a black man because he is conservative. He is only the second black to be on the Supreme Court. However, he wasn't even mentioned as a black achiever at the newly opened African American Museum in DC! WTF?

Great thread, very timely, because it puts into context why we're seeing a rise in black conservatives. This whole leftist circus is not going unnoticed by black Americans, who like many Americans with all of our varying backgrounds, smell a rat.

Hearing varying "polls" about Trump's increase with black Americans, but just based on listening to Washington Journal in the mornings ( a call in show with the public ) there is indeed an awakening among black and all Americans happening. Our melting pot of lovely flavors is being soured by identity politics, and the Dem's are the worse offenders, spitting in our stew with their vile need to control humanity. Hopefully this documentary will be seen by many.

Trump in 2016 told black American voters "What have the Democrats done for you? Vote for me. What do you have to lose?"


So how did African-Americans vote in the 2016 election? Despite President Obama telling black voters that he would take it as a "personal insult" if they didn't cast their ballot for Hillary Clinton, 2016 black voters didn't coalesce behind Clinton the same way they did Obama, with Clinton earning 88% of their vote (to Trump's 8%) as compared to Obama's 93% in 2012. That being said, the overwhelming majority of African-Americans did show their support by voting for Clinton.


Numbers breakdown here

Trump has now given black Americans the lowest unemployment numbers in our history.

Then signed into law the Prison Reform Act.

So where are we now?


Some polls have indicated that Trump’s approval rating among black voters is close to 20 percent. That is far higher than the 8 percent of the African-American vote that Trump received on Election Day 2016.

A recent, admittedly controversial Rasmussen Reports poll showed African-American approval of Trump at 36 percent.

Even 20 percent African-American support for Trump would all but dismantle Democratic-party presidential hopes for 2020. Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election with 88 percent of the black vote. That was about a six-point falloff from Barack Obama’s share of the black vote in 2012.


New Numbers here

So is #Blexit a real thing?

Seems to be and for a good reason.

After all, what have Democrats actually done for black Americans in the last 40 years?

The imminent release of this documentary is perfect timing 11 months out from the election and the icing on the cake is that the democrats have no-one on offer worth considering - the only one palatable is Tulsi, and she's on the coat (dissed by the inner circle) and won't get the primary nomination - far too conservative, not willing to do the bidding of the corporate bankster lobbyists.

Biden - creepy pedo
Harris - Bitch
Warren - low energy
Sanders - Venezuela 2.0
Buttgeek - who cares
Yang - who cares.

Anyway, sorry to veer off topic...but its all working towards the same end anyway - providing information to the masses prior to the next election.

Will Nationalists retain the oval office or will Globalists once again assume the position in 2020?

Cheers for making this thread.

U.S. Attorney General William Barr agrees with you. His speech 2 weeks ago would have the radical left quaking in their boots, if they were capable of comprehending what he eloquently stated.

When your sole obsession is to wage scorched earth warfare against the demons and boogeymen of the past you will quickly find yourself becoming those demons and boogeymen in their stead. What were Hitler and the Nazis other than a forefather of the grievance culture?

I think your post is perfectly on topic especially because of the timing, as you pointed out.

Just another nail in Joe's coffin and the documentary is a good reminder of EXACTLY how the Democratic party does politics...

While we will be in the middle of a Presidential election with an Impeachment inquiry going...

It's almost like it was orchestrated.
